Kathryn McCormick

Kathryn McCormick is an up-and-coming performer skilled in both dance and acting. In addition to performing for director Adam Shankman on the 2010 Academy Awards telecast, she has worked with choreographer Mia Michaels and starred on a national tour with the troupe from Fox Network's So You Think You Can Dance.

McCormick has danced all of her life. Born in Augusta, Georgia, to a dance-instructor mother and a golf-pro father, she showed promise as a performer early on. By age 11, she was winning tap and jazz dance competitions. At 13, she moved into ballet dancing with the Augusta Ballet. McCormick moved to Los Angeles when she was 19, taking dance classes and competing for film and television roles. Although she did one day of work on the short-lived series Fame, she found jobs hard to come by. In 2009, after failing to make the cut for two years, she landed a spot on the series So You Think You Can Dance.

During Season 6 of that series, McCormick won the Top Girl Dancer Award. She was asked back as an All-Star performer in 2010. McCormick has also been featured in the music video for Christina Perri's "Jar of Hearts.

McCormick gives many hours of her own time to charity work, including working with teens and church groups as a motivational speaker.
